Sagebrook Home, a global home décor brand, plans to establish operations in Summerville, South Carolina. The $80 million project is expected to create 117 jobs in Berkeley County.
The facility will serve as a 500,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art distribution center for the company’s home décor and wholesale operations. The site is planned to be online in May 2022.
“As Sagebrook Home continues to grow, the decision to distribute from both the East and West Coasts seemed a natural evolution. With the rising cost of shipping, there was no better time to add bicoastal distribution. This new distribution center gives us the opportunity to implement the latest in technology and keep Sagebrook Home a force in the HOME category,” Sagebrook Home Co-CEO Justin Kachan said.
As an incentive, The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $100,000 Set-Aside grant to Berkeley County to assist with the costs of site preparation and building construction.
“Sagebrook Home’s decision to locate a new distribution facility in Berkeley County is reason to celebrate. This announcement speaks volumes to our state’s logistics advantages, infrastructure and business-friendly environment,” added Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.
California-based Sagebrook Home was born from the love of design, leading the trade industry with design creativity, manufacturing, and distributing over 10,000 unique and innovative home decor products. The company features flexible B2B buying options that range from ordering direct containers to full truckloads, case pack bulk ordering and individual decor items for immediate delivery all over the world.
“SC Ports is thrilled to handle goods for Sagebrook’s first East Coast distribution center. This impressive home décor company will benefit from SC Ports’ creative supply chain solutions and expansive port infrastructure. Sagebrook’s new furniture distribution center builds on Charleston’s centrality to the furniture and home goods segment,” SC Ports CEO Jim Newsome added.
